Finished Octopus


My Octopus Socks are finished! I could have finished them much earlier this week, but got to the toe and then got distracted. I've gotta say, I think these are my favorite socks I've ever made. The pattern is so easy and fun to knit. The yarn I used is so soft and nice. And the socks fit so good. 

Sock Stats:
Pattern: Circles Socks by Anne Campbell
Yarn: Knit Picks Felici in Dakota (this color is no longer available)
Needles: #2 circular
Size: Made to fit size 9 women's foot. Used the same amount of stitches specified but used a size larger needle then the pattern states. I cast on once (and made an entire 1st cuff) with size 1 and it was too small. 
Notes: I added an extra repeat to the cuff and did 6 total. I wanted to use up all of my yarn but still have a bit left over. I probably could have done one more repeat.

More gratuitous pictures...
